For Santiago, the architecture of "Centro Histórico" was the first thing that captured his attention. As a kid he would go there with his grandmother every weekend and visit a new building or museum every time. It quickly became a hobby to do the same thing all over the city. In no time, he had finished his degree in architecture, with an emphasis on history, and decided to turn his hobby into a career. Since then has enjoyed getting to know new people everyday and passing on the passion he feel for his native Mexico City.
